The new Fox comedy MAKING HISTORY gives a funny spin to time-traveling.

I had a great time speaking with the series’ co-protagonist, Adam Pally (The Mindy Project).

Read the exclusive interview below and catch the show every Sunday, on Fox.

Sometimes we romanticize the past and we forget about racism, health standards, etc. The show is having a little bit of fun with that. Right?

Yeah. There is something very fun and honest about looking at what was wrong with the past. Comedically it is a very easy please to go.

Is it a goal of the show to make us learn something, or it’s just about having fun?

I think that you can learn something by proxy of having fun. We are not trying to make any grand statement or set up any kind of education assistance. Our goal is to make you laugh and care about these characters. But just because we go to the past, naturally you can pick stuff up.

In the first episode we see your character, Dan, using this device in a selfish way. Will he become more altruistic and heroic?

Possibly. I think that Dan has a hero in him. But, for the most part, he wants to pick up chicks and have some good beer. The best way to do that is to travel to a place where he seems cool.

Is it hard to keep the script free from the whole “Butterfly effect” and the confusing ramifications of time-travel?

When we started we really discussed that. We won’t get caught up in the physics of time-traveling. You can bang your head against the floor trying to write jokes about the space-time continuum.

MAKING HISTORY airs on Fox, Sundays 8:30/7:30c.

Two shows in one, it’s both a rollicking historical adventure, and a contemporary comedy about love, friendship and trying to fit in to an increasingly complex and impersonal world. DAN CHAMBERS (Adam Pally, “The Mindy Project,” “Happy Endings”), a computer science professor at a small Massachusetts college, recently discovered time travel and has been transporting himself back to the 1700s to spend time with the colonial woman he’s fallen for. In the present, Dan is an unpopular nerd. But by claiming song lyrics, lines from movies and stand-up bits as his own in the 18th century, he’s absolutely hilarious – he gets the girl and makes friends. But Dan’s actions in the past are messing up the present. That woman he’s dating is not just any woman. She’s Paul Revere’s daughter, DEBORAH (Leighton Meester, “Gossip Girl”), and Dan’s meddling in the past causes her father to delay his famous ride, which may have altered the outcome of the entire American Revolution. To set matters right, Dan enlists the help of his colleague, CHRIS PARISH (Yassir Lester, “Girls,” “Key and Peele”), a brilliant, polished and popular history professor, who’s now given the incredible opportunity to actually live the history he teaches. Can Dan, Chris and Deborah save America as we know it? Can a woman from 1775 adapt to life in 2016? Can the three intrepid time travelers improve the past, help the helpless, fight for justice and get rich?
